Honda Supra GTR 150 Adventure Is a Real Off-Road Scooter

Proper adventure and off-road scooters might finally become reality for Honda, recent photos of the Supra GTR 150 Adventure Indonesian model hint. There is no telling as to whether this machine, or at least, the philosophy behind it will extend to international markets, but we surely hope so.

The Supra GTR 150 Adventure is a spin-off of the GTR 150 Honda successfully sells in Indonesia. Mixed news reports that this model is already set for production, while other sources indicate that it is only a prototype.

Honestly, the Honda Supra GTR 150 Adventure looks ready to roll in these two pictures. There may be some wishful thinking involved in this, but we reckon that it's not only us who'd simply love to see such scooters making it into the international markets.

Honda revised the architecture of the base scooter, with the engine relocation in the frame bring the first thing you will notice. While the overall attire of the Adventure machine resembles quite a bit to that of the base GTR 150, the ground clearance was significantly improved. The Honda Supra GTR 150 Adventure can now take advantage of the 17" wheels, for passing obstacles and wading streams more easily.

Apparently, the scooter in these two pictures is also laden with a lot of aftermarket accessories, such as the orange crash bars, soft-case panniers, racing exhaust, hand protectors, and auxiliary lights are nor among the stock items. Even so, the Honda Supra GTR 150 Adventure looks amazing with knobby tires, and it also appears that they are actual dual-sport tires and not some sort of wannabe mock-ups.

A 150cc single cylinder engine is clearly not enough to tackle the toughest terrain, loaded fully and riding two-up, but we love the overall idea. If Honda decides to extend its scooter segment with adventure models, we can only be happy.

Frankly, we hope that true Adv small machines DO make it into production for international markets because the City Adventure NC750-based machine might not be the one, with its rumored price and with its rather poor terrainability and cargo capacity.
